TalkSPORT Super Computer predicts Leeds end of season finish
By Derek Smithson
A ‘Super Computer’ tasked with predicting the final Championship table has placed Leeds United in fourth.
Radio station talkSPORT has fed data into their prediction machine in an attempt to see how the league campaign will look at the end of the season.
The computer has placed Thomas Christiansen’s side inside the play-off positions in fourth, while Wolves and Hull have been picked out as the two teams to gain automatic promotion.
Cardiff, Middlesbrough and Fulham were also listed inside the play-offs and are expected to be competing at the top-end of the table.
Leeds just missed out on the play-offs in the 2016/17 campaign and would love to get back in the top flight during Christiansen’s first year in charge.
